Road to the Metaverse, Executive Series, Episode 2: Flying into the metaverse

Watch, on demand, as Ryan Peterson and Lynette DuJohn, Chief Innovation Officer for the Vancouver Airport Authority (YVR), discuss the digital transformation of an airport and how creating YVR’s digital twin will positively serve their employees, passengers, and the community.

During the webinar, Lynette also gives a live demo of the YVR digital twin. Some key highlights of the demo include:

  • Tracking of major airport processes and thresholds for delays in flights, customs, and pre-board screening, so frontline employees can manage situations as and before they arise.
  • Using data feeds to track planes and vehicles on the airfields for safety and to aid in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by passengers and by cargo – in real-time.
  • Sensor trackers to determine when a car has been idling for too long in drop-off zones.
  • Viewing maintenance reports of rooms that require immediate service, throughout the entire airport (which is the largest building in Vancouver).
  • Simulating airport traffic, to aid in the accurate planning of exit and emergency strategies.
